monograph1_580px monograph2_580px monograph3_580px I've just completed an artist monograph entitled 'Ko te Korero te Kai a te Rangatira (Words are the Food of Chiefs),' a follow-up to the exhibition of the same name held at The Modern Pantry in 2012. The booklet includes artworks from this series, accompanied by an essay by Trish Stevenson, and an artist interview. The monograph was designed by me, printed and bound by Henningham Family Press. Text pages are in full colour HP indigo prints on 100gsm paper; covers foil blocked and screenprinted on Fedrigoni 290gsm paper; hand-bound and singer sewn. It comes in a limited edition of 50, artist stamped, and is available for sale on this website. Many thanks to Dave Henningham for the exquisite job he did on the binding and finishing, which includes an innovative 'blind' singer sewing technique on the spine, which sits beautifully with the short-sized, whakairo (wood carving) cover wrap. Thanks to Trish Stevenson, Karl and Kateia Burrows and Arte Toi which provided the inspiration for this series of work, and played a significant part in bringing it to completion.
